Sydney and Nate
How We Met
Nate and I met through mutual friends two years ago in August. A few months after we met, on November 7th, 2015, we went out for a “group dinner” that was really a setup. We went to Soho House in Los Angeles with a few of our mutual friends and shortly after, I was living with him in Newport Beach, Ca. Things were great and we knew instantly that we were it for one another but we had some things to work out and broke up in October 2016.
How He Asked
A few months went by and both of us thought things were completely done. I started dating someone during this time. On March 18th, he landed from a hockey game and came straight to my sister’s fiancés birthday party. After that, we got started talking and got back together. I moved back in a week later. Four months later, in Maui on August 12th, he proposed and I could not be happier. On August 28th, we are moving to Canada. Nate recently signed with the Ottawa Senators (previously was with the Anaheim Ducks). We plan on getting married next summer at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
The ring and proposal were more incredible than anything I dreamt of. We picked the kind of cut together a while ago but I didn’t know a thing about it. He asked my parents for permission and then my dad and he went to the jeweler together, then my mom went with him. It was really special.
